AppNeta

AppNeta is well suited any place where there are customer facing applications where speed/efficiency determines the customer perception of business service.

WhatsUp Gold

It's best suited for large/multinational organisations with complex networks with limited qualified personnel across every location. However, I wouldn't recommend it for a small organisation with a very simple network architecture.

  • Optimal network and endpoint device monitoring.
  • Explicit report generation on the endpoint and network performance.
  • Investigating and troubleshooting of network and endpoint device issue has been made very easy.

Cons

  • AppNeta could bundle all of their applications together. We received a demo for TraceView which allows insight on specific DB & API calls which is very valuable, but was not part of our original agreement/pricing structure.

  • Training is needed to use WhatsUp Gold to its full potential.
  • A network inventory would be a nice feature to have without having to pay extra

Alternatives Considered

We currently use Nagios/GroundWork and Cacti to perform network monitoring. AppNeta's UI is far superior.

From a initial setup, WhatsUp takes Splunk down. I had WhatsUp up within minutes of monitoring and rebooting. From a PRTG perspective, setup was about the same. Now PRTG doesn't have all the bells and whistle WhatsUp has but for tracking and monitoring Netflow and Syslog traffic its user interface is easier to maneuver, especially since they went to the web interface only.

  • Saves on system downtime and lost productivity
  • Remote monitoring means less staff hours spent checking for potential problems.
